Lucks Cottages Pevensey Bay, researcher looks to her own family history to find extraordinary links

Local resident and genealogist, Gill Darbyshire, who lives in North Road in the heart of Pevensey Bay is discovering her family history and seeing some extraordinary photographic evidence about where her family lived. The patterns from her research show how closely aligned her current family living patterns are with the generations that came before her.

Talking to the Pevensey Bay Journal today (28 February), she explained some aspects of her research and said that she is happy to share some of her research with other Pevensey Bay residents.

Here is the first of the photographs she explains, “this is a photo of Samuel Cosstick and his wife Esther who lived in Lucks Cottages. In both 1881 and 1891 he lived at the Railway Crossing Pevensey Bay and was the railway porter. In 1901 and 1911 census he lived in Lucks Cottages and was a house painter.

What was called ‘Lucks Cottages’ is a few doors down from where Gill now lives herself with her own family here in Pevensey Bay.
